In celebration of National Donut Day, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is offering its U.S. Facebook fans and those who "like" its U.S. Facebook page a free donut with any purchase coupon valid on June 1.
This is the third year the cafe bakery chain has participated in National Donut Day celebrations with an online coupon.
"Our beloved donuts are a significant part of the foundation of this company," said Mike Meilleur, senior vice president of U.S. operations, Tim Hortons. "We think National Donut Day is as much of a holiday to celebrate big as any other national holiday. The Facebook coupon is our way to reward our loyal guests and introduce new fans to the brand."
The National Donut Day coupon is now available online and is only valid on June 1.
National Donut Day is celebrated across the United States on the first Friday in June. The annual event originated in 1938 as a Great Depression fundraiser by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers in World War I.
Dunkin' Donuts is also offering a free donut to celebrate this longstanding tradition.
